The Last Daughter – Fri 8th March 7:30pm

“The Last Daughter” is a powerful film that invites us on a journey of deep self-reflection. As we witness Brenda’s quest for understanding and reconciliation, we are prompted to explore our own identities and histories, and to embark on our own journeys of healing from past wounds.

Brenda’s first memories are of growing up in a loving white foster family, before being suddenly taken away and returned to her Aboriginal family.

Decades later, she feels disconnected from both halves of her life. But the traumas of her past do not lie quietly buried. So, she goes searching for the foster family with whom she had lost all contact.

Along the way she uncovers long-buried secrets, government lies, and the possibility for deeper connections to family and culture. The Last Daughter is a documentary about Brenda’s journey to unearth the truth about her past, and to reconcile the two sides of her family.
